Dubbed as the biggest awards ceremony to take place in Singapore this year, the Mnet Asian Music Awards 2011 (MAMA 2011) ended with a bang after Super Junior bagged the coveted Album of the Year award for their fifth album, Mr. Simple.
Over the four-hour long live show, 2NE1, Girls' Generation, and solo artiste Baek Ji Young each swept two awards home with Super Junior emerging as the biggest winner of the night, bagging three awards for Album of the Year - Mr Simple, Best Male Group and Singapore's Choice for Most Favourite Korean Artist.
During the group's thank you speech onstage for Album of the Year, which is also deemed as the 'biggest award' of MAMA 2011, leader Lee Teuk gave a heartfelt speech and triggered a wave of emotions amongst the members.
The leader talked about spending "a beautiful time in his 20s" with Singapore fans and expressed their sincere thanks towards all the support that fans have given the group during their ups and downs, especially when "no one knew of us" and "acknowledged" them during their early days.
He also gave a shoutout to members who were not able to attend 2011 MAMA due to other reasons and Shindong, Yesung and Kyuhyun were seen trying to fight back the tears
The 28-year-old added, "Thank you for everything. This might be our last awards ceremony before we start our army enlistment. This is an unforgettable award ceremony. We will continue to work hard in future. Thank you everyone!"
